Mother's Day in a Mason Jar.

The humble mason jar, once relegated to the back of the pantry and used only for canning has had quite the resurgence in the last half a decade, hasn't it? Ubiquitous among the crafters, the mason jar has been embraced by these creative souls and they've come up with COUNTLESS ways to use them. (I'm DEFINITELY guilty of jumping on the mason jar bandwagon too, evidence here.) Mother's Day is coming up this weekend and I know there are a few of us out there who haven't had time to buy gifts or even think about how to celebrate our own moms on Sunday, so I thought I'd do a round-up of some of these crafters' fun ideas for turning a mason jar into something a little more special.

The top of that sewing kit in a jar is a pin cushion! Totally cute. And you can even buy a gorgeous apron that is packaged in a mason jar. {sewing kit, apron}

I also love the idea of wrapping the jars in brightly colored yarn to create decorative vases. {source via Brit + Co}

Painting the jars also adds a bit of DIY charm and I love the idea of planting a little succulent garden in them. Or how about dipping them in glitter?  {succulents,  glitter dipped jars via positively splendid}

Or let's get real. What does any mom REALLY want on a day celebrating her achievements in parenting? That's right. A giant glass of wine. In a mason jar, of course. {wine glass}

Wishing a Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there celebrating! I hope you  have a day filled with time with your mom, time with your kids, time with your partner and maybe even a little time all by yourself.
